Default How reliable/accurate is Speedtest.net?

I have standard Roadrunner that is supposed to provide 5 Mbps/1 Mbps and over the past couple of days, I'm seeing 8 Mbps and higher on the download. Upload speeds are consistent regardless of the test server.

This a local test to Lava.net:


Here is one test to the mainland (East coast):


I'm getting anywhere between 8 and 10 Mbps. The speeds seem higher than what I'm paying for, so I'm just wondering if the test is accurate.
